  1. What's new in this club
  2. Here is a very exciting, fully loaded Maverick Trail.
  3. Got the body today, Looks pretty good but saw that MMC didn’t patch the gas filler like they were suppose to. Guess if you need something done right you gotta do it yourself. At least they got me most of the way. Just paid MMC for metal work, it’s all I could afford. They wanted, just for the cab, another $2000 for body work and $4000 and up for paint. I am going to learn to do it myself with the help of Eastwood.
  4. First topic should be dated 2019-03-14 Found this sick beast sitting in someones yard rotting away. Always loved the old trucks so it appears I’ve going to invest in another money pit but I’m not making it a show truck. Just want it to be a solid driver. Will post pictures but I can tell ya I have no experience with body work what so ever so anything rusted out I’ll have to replace which is pretty much the entire body but I was given two doors (with glass) and a solid hood which would of cost me $900 for hood and $530 each for the doors so doing good there. CAB is my biggest worry. I may just have to take it off and bring it somewhere to have it worked on. So let’s get an idea of body work cost (besides what the cab will cost me) Front Fenders ($220 each, so $440) Cowl Panel ($100 each, so $200) Grill Support Panel ($270) Bedside-Complete ($650 each, so $1300) Just starting… I’ll add as I figure out what mess I got into
  5. Got the transfer case in and found the 2nd to last bolt won’t tighten because it looks like a JB weld repair was done probably because they put too long of a bolt in. also verified the old driveshaft works
  6. GGot the transfer case / transmission adapter today from eBay and installed the new O-Ring rubber in the rear of the trans and slide the adapter on and tightened the four bolts holding it on the trans. the Transmission Cross Member I just paid too much money for, doesn’t work. Talking to Transtar Mike he mentioned the 700R4/NP241C is longer then the stock 350 or 400 trans with similar transfer case so the cross member won’t work. Sooo, going to Plan B which is attempt to use the newer cross member for the suburbans and trucks that had the 700R4 trans. looks good, just need to drill out a hole on either side. The rear hole on both sides lines up with existing holes but the front hole in the frame is too far away so I need to drill a hole closer to put the required 4 bolts in to hold the crossmember but as you see from the photo. It looks lined up. Truth will be when I tighten the trans mount and install transfer case and install driveshafts. i did have to cut the drivers side exhaust pipe to fit the support but it didn’t line up with the engine anyhow.
